Leila has a B.A. in Criminology from Simon Fraser University (SFU). She found a deep appreciation for restorative justice in her classes and held some of her first circles as a student. In January 2020, she began the Restorative Justice Continuing Studies Certificate at SFU. Leila has always been passionate about helping people in need, and began volunteering with NSRJ in May of 2020 as their Volunteer Coordinator and sits on the Engagement Committee, the Equity Audit Committee, the Nominations Commitee and has helped start up the Communications Task Force that had created the Monthly Newsletter!
Leila is currently living in Kamloops and enjoys going on hikes, swimming in local lakes and going on adventures in the interior.
Leila is extremely grateful to volunteer and share her passion for Restorative Justice and building relationships with people with the volunteer work she does for the NSRJS.
